I was recently judging a creative writing competition for a big network of hundreds of international schools. Hektoen Grand Prix Essay Contest Hektoen International, an online journal dedicated to medical humanities, offers two prizes annually for essays of no more than 1, words in two categories.
Writers in the older age groups try to show me how well they can use fancy words. I publish this list of creative writing contests as a service to visitors.
As judging is blind, do not include your name, address, phone number, email address or other identifying information in the upper left-hand corner of the first page.
Academic level and major do not matter. The new goal is to create an educational version for schools to use, free of cost to those schools in need, and help America get back to high literacy rates. Annual submission window is September 1 through December Burton hosted the program.
The Essay Writing Contest focuses on two aspects: Quarterly on January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1. Also, let me know if any contests have been discontinued. Stone Soup is made up of stories, poems, book reviews, and art by young people through age Burton hosted the program.
Boost discovery and boost your sales. Entries should be typed, and on one side of the paper only.

A long time ago, when Stone Soup was first founded, we didn’t commission illustrations. Instead, we published pieces of art that excited us—regardless of their connection to a specific story!
We have recently decided to return to this practice.Download
